Definitely. While we’re not a diet or calorie-restrictive service, we promote cooking from fresh ingredients, providing you with the transparency and the control over what you eat. It is undoubtedly better than relying on restaurant food, take out or any ready-to-cook meals.
Our Meisterdish chefs and nutritionists curate menus so you can eat healthy, well-balanced meals with seasonal, responsibly sourced ingredients.
We recommend cooking straight away or the next day to benefit from the freshness of our ingredients. Some of the ingredients might stay fresh longer.
We founded Meisterdish to allow you to only order when you really want to cook. No more full fridges, food waste or leftovers. Meisterdish meals are fresher, tastier and healthier than any other dinner option.
We offer a choice of entrées, sides, pastas, and salads. We change our menu weekly to always offer you something interesting, new and fresh.

If you want just a single serving size, feel free to halve the portions and keep one serving for the next day. Or just cook right away for your next day lunch or dinner. Or simply invite your neighbors. They will be impressed by how well you cook!

You only need a basic equipped kitchen. If you have the following you are set for all of our Meisterdishes:
Salt, pepper and olive oil. We recommend a pepper mill, fresh ground pepper enhances the taste.
A stove with two flames, two pans, two pots, knife and cutting board. Wooden spoon, strainer, spatula and two mixing bowls.
If you do not have all of these at home do not worry, be creative! Most things can be improvised. You will also see in the details of every menu item what you specifically will need in your kitchen.
Our chefs select the freshest, seasonal ingredients. Often, they will source their ingredients from local, sustainable farms. You can easily know what goes into your meal by going to the meal description and clicking on the various ingredients and sources. Unlike a traditional restaurant with a fixed menu, our chefs' menus are constantly changing, which gives you great variety and seasonality. More selection means that you’ll never get bored with our offerings. But, we also bring back favorites that you have already cooked and enjoyed and perhaps by now, you can almost cook them blindfolded. A typical meal consists of multiple items including an entrée and one or more side dishes. Each meal comes in a minimum serving size of two adult portions.

For a restaurant-like dinner experience, we recommend to get for 2 people 2 boxes, combine one salad dish with one pasta or entrée dish. If you are looking for a quick weekday dinner, one box with two serving sizes will be fine for 2 persons. The calorie count on the boxes are per serving size.
We take great care to ensure that all of our food is prepared safely.

Meals are tagged with a green label marking them as vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free, etc. Look for these tags to determine ingredients and allergy restrictions.

Your Meisterdish order comes with all the ingredients you need, in exactly the right proportions to cook your dinner. What is special about Meisterdish is that it is designed to maximize the result but minimize the effort you need to put in. Our ingredients come cleaned, cut and diced, so that you can cook in 15 minutes (or less). To preserve maximum freshness we generally do not cut herbs and some types of fruit and vegetables. But those steps will be easy and fast. In addition, each dish comes with a beautifully printed recipe card and step-by-step instructions that are well illustrated to make it as easy as possible for you. Success guarantee included!
The only things we assume you will have in your pantry are salt, pepper and olive oil.
We source the best quality products available, and purchase as many ingredients as we can from local, family-run suppliers with sustainable practices. Our meats are naturally raised, and we work with top fishermen to bring you the freshest seafood each week.
While not all of our ingredients are certified as organic, we work with many small family farms and artisanal purveyors—please feel free to visit our Suppliers page to find out more on our partners.

Our meals are curated to be packed each morning so that you can taste the freshness of the local ingredients. It is best to cook the same day that you receive your Meisterdish, but if you happen to cook the next day, it will still be fresh and tasty.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make it right.
We provide calorie information for each of our recipes listed under details of the meal (click on the meal photo).
Since the exact nutrient amounts will depend on varying sizes of produce and the amount of olive oil and salt you use when cooking, we aren't able to provide full nutritional information.
